Do you have any advice for someone who is interested in acquiring reading proficiency in Latin? Books, grammars, etc. My goal would only be to be able to read and not translate. I would like an approach which is more vacualary rather than grammar oriented.
If you have experience in this regard, I would be glad to hear from you.

Vast majority of people have moved over to
www.forum.language-learners.org after technical
difficulties here so you might want to sign up over
there and ask.

I suggest you look at this Forum at TextKit, where there are a lot of discussions about learning Latin and Ancient Greek. Good luck with your Latin.
